For all funeral and most wedding jobs - you cannot rely upon finding the music you need in the church or chapel you are going to. It's always safer to take your own.

The Choir of the Royal Memorial Chapel, Sandhurst

www.royalmemorialchapel.com

has vacancies for two tenors (singing first and second tenor) in the regular choir.

Good reading ability and a well-produced voice are pre-requisite.

The choir consists of a nucleus of 25 singers who provide the sung services within the

Royal Memorial Chapel, Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.

For further details: www.christchurchsingers.org

 

St. John’s Cathedral, Salford has vacancies for choral scholars at alto and bass. The scholarships are paid at £30 per week, and the normal commitment is Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings. There's also a requirement to be present during all of Holy Week (25th March – 1st April 2018). But at other times there's plenty of scope for time off.

 

The choir consists of around 18 men and women singers, and provides a wide spectrum of traditional and contemporary liturgical music: we're a Catholic church very much in the Vatican II mould, if that means anything to you. We occasionally appear on TV, most recently a cameo in ITV's Love Your Garden earlier in the year.

Bromley Parish Church offers four choral scholarships of £400 per annum to student singers who are in Year 11 and above. The commitment is to attend the choir rehearsals on Thursday evenings, the sung Eucharist service on the 1st, 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month and choral evensong on the second Sunday, with the preceding rehearsals where applicable. (The choir is not required to sing at the All Age service on the 3rd Sunday of the month).

A Choral Scholarship is a wonderful way of gaining experience of singing at a high standard in a group that covers a large repertoire. It is also excellent preparation for any young musician wanting to pursue music further, especially singers who may wish to apply for Choral Awards at University. As a Choral Scholar, you would be expected to demonstrate excellent commitment and musicianship.

We are always delighted to hear from young people who are interested in joining the choir and contributing to our wonderful musical tradition. We have 3 choral scholars leaving us in September (one of whom is taking up a place as a choral scholar at Trinity College Cambridge) and we would ideally like to fill those places with a soprano, alto and tenor if possible.

Please contact the Director of Music, Frank Roddy, for further details. (francis.roddy23@gmail.com ).

Waltham St Lawrence is a charming and welcoming village in rural east Berkshire, between Reading and Maidenhead and the church is renowned for its 'Waltham Welcome'. The church has a dedicated choir with a strong Anglican choral tradition as well as a fine Father Willis organ.

The choir sings at one service per week and at a monthly Choral Evensong. The choir has sung at Southwark and Portsmouth Cathedrals and has further cathedral trips booked to Portsmouth, Chichester and Guildford cathedrals in the forthcoming year, as well as its Carol Service and annual Choral Festival.
The current vacancies are for Alto, Tenor and Bass voices (1 of each). Applications are welcomed from all students aged 18+ and those working towards a career in music.
